Round 4 of the ISPS HANDA Perth International produced 32 sub-par rounds and a field average score of 72.04. Jin Jeong emerged as the winner from a playoff with Ross Fisher to take the title. We analyse their performances for the week and round up the final Genworth Statistics leaders.

Jin JEONG -10

After starting with a double bogey, Jin Jeong fired five birdies on his way to a final round 69, eventually taking the title in a playoff against Ross Fisher. Looking at his Genworth Statistics for the week, the 23 year old Korean talent scored very well across the different hole types (being the Par 3’s / Par 4’s / Par 5’s), which was mainly due to some great consistently with the longer clubs. He ranked 11th for Driving Accuracy (with 42/56 fairways), 6th for Greens in Regulation (with 56/72 greens) and 2nd behind Danny Willett for Par 5’s in 2 (with 4/16 Par 5 sub-regulation hits). With this being only Jin’s 15th European Tour start, are we seeing a potential new star emerging?
